Tales From the Ends of Worlds

A weaving tale through the ends of worlds. Travelers encounter libraries, hotels, and one another as worlds great and small collapse in whimpering rage or completely unnoticed. Some fight, some flee, but worry not for "on a long enough timeline, the population of any planet is statistically zero."

The Lark of the Dewbird

The Lark of the Dewbird

The most ferocious storm could not compare to the thunder of artillery the surrounded David. As he found himself covered in mud, lying in a crater and clinging to his rifle, he reflected on his past. When news reached him seven months ago that his people were being pressured by all their neighbors during the ignition of the Great War, he assumed that his peaceful country would simply continue to export freely and bribe visiting diplomats to maintain neutrality. However, even if something did happen, David never imagined that the war would reach his home, a town that found itself cut off from the world deep in the mountains. David suddenly covered his ears as a new crater was planted but feet away. His entire body was almost consumed by mud as he stared into the sky, which only trickled some rain through the smoke. Was this how he died? Just then, a small little blue bird descended from the clouds, and its song seeming to pierce through lightning and thunder. Hope.

Markets and Multiverses

Markets and Multiverses

When Miria died, she didn’t stay dead.

After her death, she found herself in a strange city called the ‘Market,’ a city in the Multiverse that once allowed certain souls to retain their memories and permanently increase their abilities between lives. Once, the Market housed a community of Transmigrators that spanned the entire multiverse, occupying the top seat of power among those who could travel between dimensions.

At least, that’s how it worked before the inhabitants were slaughtered and the Market was razed to the ground. Now, the Market is a wasteland of spells, technology, and liches. In order to survive in a multiverse filled with magic and interdimensional travelers, Miria and her friends need to make use of the tools left by the old Market,  find the other factions who travel between dimensions, and explore the myriad worlds if they don’t wish to meet the same fate.

1939 - Year Of The Bat-Man

1939 - Year Of The Bat-Man

Resetting Batman's origin story back to 1939, this is a very literary first-person perspective novel that is heavily inspired by the comics, and places emphasis upon the science and technology of the Batman mythos. It is firmly cemented in real world history using historical figures to do so, and utilizes detailed forensic knowledge of the time period to create a believable detective mystery.

1939 - Year of the Bat-Man is told from the perspectives of Bruce Wayne, James Gordon, and Selena Kyle. The tale imagines young Bruce being kidnapped by Gotham's "Streetnapper" on the night that his parents were murdered. It is here where his psyche shatters and the bat persona slowly begins to take on a life of its own. Little does he know, this event will eventually prove to become his greatest clue in solving the identity of the illusive criminal, allowing the Bat-Man to take his vengeance and cement his legacy in Gotham forever.

The wise man was also drunk but he said something about religion and that's all that mattered, really, so who cares if everything else in that sentence was false?

His great-grandpa was a beet farmer.
His grandpa was a beet farmer.
His dad was a knight! Then for some god-awful reason retired early to be a --you guessed it -- fucking beet farmer.
It's a family curse at this point, it has to be.
A curse of wasting away in their endless fields of beets boiling under the sun, only to barely make enough to survive past winter and taking in more debts to last till spring.
Everyone in the village already called him Eli the beet farmer like they were laying a malicious curse of poverty on his head so, of course, he dreaded thinking about the future.
Then Eli started hearing voices.
And it had a great idea.

In a modern yet fantastical world, similar to that of our own, there are three species that coexist with each other in a somewhat peaceful manner. Humans, Elves, and Ogres make up this dynamic on planet Earth. Ogres are naturally much more powerful than the other races and have a violent nature, causing them to face discrimination. As a result, they are often relegated into poverty. Elves have gained favor in America with their beauty, status, and power; allowing them to take control of the government little by little. Humans are proud and resourceful, allowing them to maintain power in this world as well.

Naturally, there have been high levels of crime recently with the elves coming into power and the ogres fed up with their way of living. What is the easiest way to deal with those problems? Killing the pests!

Assassination has been made into a legal profession under the elves' new laws. Any problems the elves want solved, "The Fam" will take care of. The main headquarters are located in Baldimore. How will our main heroine get involved with these guys?
